Residents have the option to choose from an HMO, PPO or Private-Fee-for-Service (PFFS) plan depending on their financial and medical needs. Typically, PPO plans are considered more expensive than the other two types of Medicare Advantage plans and if a senior opts for a plan that also offers other coverage such as dental, vision or hearing, they may face a steeper monthly premium than their neighbors.
According to the U.S. News & World Report, the best rated Medicare Advantage carrier offered to seniors in D.C. is Kaiser Permanente, which has 5/5 stars.
